The weather here has been so nice lately. I decided to go outside and snap a few pics to share with you of my Fall decor on my porch. However, I must warn you, if you're looking for a lot of "cute" scarecrows, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and witches, you will not find them here. Nor will you find anything very creative that will inspire you to go and craft something of your own. Nope......sorry. Not here this year.
Instead, I am embracing a "less is more" approach. I have just a few pumpkins scattered about and some pansies on my front porch. We will carve the pumpkins on Halloween night though. We still have a lot of summer greenery around, so there isn't much Fall color happening in my front yard either.
So, if I haven't sent you running yet, here is the view of my house from across the street.
You can hardly see the house through all of the leaves still on the trees. In November, it will be almost bare though.
It was very sunny this day and hard to get pictures without the sun glaring. Notice our crepe myrtles have already been pruned. I know it is early, but we never did it at all last year and paid the price this year with very few blooms.
Here are the pansies on my front porch.
We usually have mild winters so they may still be around in a few months!
As you can see, my ferns are still doing well.
Our Fall color doesn't really peak until later in the month. Also, it is still warm during the day. So, I can sit out here and enjoy the mild temps for a while longer.
I hope that I didn't disappoint you. I know there are many in blog land that are going all out with their Fall decor. I'm just wanting less this year. Maybe when the trees start turning pretty colors, I'll feel like doing more. LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
